Illinois newborn photographer

Just a note to let you know I will be unavailable until Tues.  My friend and fellow photographer are getting together to shoot each others families over the weekend.   I am over the moon excited to have some images of my family to plaster all over my walls.  It will be nice to let someone else shoot my kids and as an extra bonus I get to be in them too 🙂  I LOVE her work and if I can’t shoot my family, she is who I’d pick so it should be fun!

People say that newborn smiles are only gas….I am a firm believer that those newborn smiles are VERY real!  There is no way this is gas…

I’ve shot so many great sessions this week.  Will share bunches next week!  Have a great weekend everyone!

I {Love} maternity!

I love maternity, especially when the couple is as fun as these two!  They are such a perfect fit, not just for each other but for my shooting style.  I love doing a maternity session before baby arrives because we get a chance to hang out for a bit and get to know each other.    Honestly,  every time one of my expecting mom’s gives birth it’s like a new addition to my family too!    I’m also not ashamed to admit I will stalk their facebook walls for any news of the big arrival 🙂  Looking forward to meeting their little bundle soon!

Little “E” is 9 months :)

We’ve had lots of 9 month olds in the studio lately.  I just love this age!!  She was born WAY early and just started sitting on her own a few days before our session.  She’s been through a lot in her short little life and truly a miracle.  I’m honored her parents chose me to capture her miraculous first year.  Here is a little sneak peek cause her momma is dying to see some 🙂
